A Day Full of Murals: Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program Tour Part 2 of A Day In Philly!
Part II of the day consisted of a bus tour of the beautiful murals that are funded by the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. The ladies of the Charm City Dolling Club arranged for this very informational tour. We had two tour guides from the Mural Arts program that provided us an in depth and informative look at the various murals created in very diverse neighborhoods across the city. The artistic ingenuity and sensitivity that went into these murals were fantastic!
We were informed that the neighborhoods have to apply for the program and the artists chosen must be sensitive and listen to the requests of the neighborhood regarding what they would like to see in their murals.
This was my second mural tour of Philadelphia and as always I like to take as many pictures of the murals that I find the most interesting. Enjoy!
I am an emerging self taught doll artist who is learning how to improve my craft. I started doll making 3 years ago and stopped due to entrepreneurial pursuits. Now with the help of my mentor Francine Haskins, I am beginning the craft again with much more vigor and interest. Please share this journey with me.
